Puppy Cottage Opening Ceremony!!!

Hi all,

Well more about Puppy Cottage...

Let's talk about Puppy Cottage opening day. The official opening date was on the 18.3.2007 which is an auspicious day to our Chinese community. By the way, the date and time was chosen after research done by Mr. and Mrs. Yeoh and thank you for preparing the red cloth and advice given to us on way to go about on the this auspicious day.

The day started off with receiving flowers from Elegant Living Sdn. Bhd., Mr. Yeoh family and last but not least Ms. Goh Ian Chen & her husband. First of all, we, Puppy Cottage, would like to say a big thank you for sending us the flower. Below are the three lovely flowers received from them:

After receiving the lovely flowers, at 11am, it is time to hang the red cloth, thus the start of the opening of our shop. Unfortunately no one help me to snap picture of me hanging the red cloth. :) In addition, 11am was also the time for us to put up our signage. Below is the picture of our signage halfway to completion and a completed night view of our signage:

Nice? A brief history about our signage. It is design by our designer, Mr. Jeremy Loh, creative director of DNA Crackers Advertising Sdn. Bhd. We, Puppy Cottage, give thanks to you for your effort in designing our signage in such a unique way. We also would like to thank Mr. Yap, marketing manager of YH Advertising & Trading, who produce and ensure that our signage is up within the time frame. (for those of you who may not know, beside the auspicious date, there are certain timing that the signage have to be up) Yes, you have notice our shop mascot right? His name is Mr. Harry, Puppy Cottage's Public Relationship Manager. Mr. Harry is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

The day proceeds smoothly with our usual business until about 4pm, when our relatives and few friends came for a simple teatime in conjunction with our opening. Before I post picture on the teatime, let us say thank you to all of you who took the time to attend our opening ceremony even though it is done in a small scale. In addition, would like to say thank you to the Kwan's family for giving us an ionizer, Poon's family for getting us a thermo pot, Mr. and Mrs. Choo for giving us a vase with orchid decoration and my family member in getting us a point of sales software and refrigerator. Followings are pictures taken during the course of teatime:
